Poetry and a Dick Joke


Rumpus Poetry editor Brian Spears will be publishing poems all week at No Tell Motel. Brian explains his plans for the coming days here (you can learn more about No Tell Motel here).

While we’re on the topic of Mr. Spears, the man has a great interview up at Almost Dorothy in which he discusses his new book, A Witness in Exile, and makes a pretty fantastic dick joke.
